Default Shock Rebuilders

Who is rebuilding original shocks now? I need a pair for the rear of my old jalopy and I don't have any good cores. Don't really care about the year, as long as they are original Model A. Does Bert's in Denver still have someone who builds them? Thanks in advance for any help.

You might try Robert Paul in Colorado. He has been rebuilding shocks for many years and is very reasonable in price - $55 per shock I believe with core or $75 without a core.

I have not used Robert Paul's shocks yet, but will be sending him 31 cores in a couple of weeks. Hoping to get 2 rebuilt sets of early-mid 29 shocks back. He will need to inspect them and call me then will know if I did good or bad with the cores I have. Seemed like a very knowledgable and very pleasant person. Rod

M&S did mine a few years ago and at least 2 of them leaked. I would not recommend them.

That's the man I was thinking of. I didn't remember his name, just that he was in Colorado.

Robert Paul is who you want - I just received a set of shocks Robert rebuilt for me. Very personable gentleman and very honest and easy to work with. Be patient though. There are a lot of folks ahead of you and it will take from 8 to 12 weeks turn around time but you will receive top quality work. I provided 4 cores and he was able to rebuild 3 and I bought 1 outright. He made sure that the one he provided matched the 3 rebuildable ones. Total cost was $255 including shipping.

Sorry, but I have nothing worth selling. The few old rusty nuggets I have are not worth the cost of shipping.
To all of you who responded, many thanks. I'm trying to get our old heap in shape for a tour in the fall and some good shocks are just one of the things I'm working on.

When we did the review of shocks we used Robert Paul to rebuild an original, liked it so much we ordered two complete sets.

I installed M&S's new after market shocks on my huckster over a year ago. So far so good.

I recently received a set of shocks from Robert Paul and am super satisfied. He did just what he said he would, they look great and the truck rides awesome with them on. Very high quality guy.

Robert Paul did mine about 3 years and 6K to 8K miles ago and they still work great.
